Armored Caprices

Hi guys,
I came across an armored '96 Caprice, the hood was different than the standard Caprices .Do you have any info on those rides ?
Being an armored vehicle it should be more different suspension set up than standard vehicles so is the engine .
What other differences could be

If it has Green coolant hoses then it is a 9C1.
If it is has black hoses then it is a civilian.

Also the 9C1 police packages had dual disc brakes whereas the civilian caprices had front disc brakes and rear drum brakes.

The 9c1 Police Package has the heavier duty suspension, which is pretty much the same suspension that they put on the Impala SS.
The 9C1's also are 5.7 LT1's only, while civilians had the 4.3 L99 standard with a 5.7 LT1 upgrade option. Be very careful the 4.3 and the 5.7 are externally the same and some people will trick you into believing that you are getting a fast 5.7 LT1 when really you are getting a slow 4.3 L99.

That is certainly not true. There are plenty of L99 9C1's.

+1, the forum has been overrun by these double digit post Einsteins as of late.

Check every section, and you'll find posts of the same caliber.

Cool pics! Thanks for posting them.

That car was most likely reworked by a 3rd party. It would be a neat car to have.

There was a company in So FL a few years ago that was outfitting used 9c1's with armor and shipping them to the Saudis. IIRC, it was at no small expense. I am sure there must have been others. I have never seen one of the finished products.

I have a large roll of Kevlar (60" X 45 yards) if any one wants to epoxy a number of layers of it to the inside of their doors. About 18-20 plys should make the door pretty much bulletproof. Let me know and I will get a price.

1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH
